headlines tuesday morning and the latest on the crisis in egypt. overnight a brand-new report that the united states secretly cut off aid to egypt. that's according to democratic senator pat leahy, the white house refused to definitely say whether it believes mohammed morsi's ouster was a coup or not. the army is trying to fiejd out if by a b-1 b bomber crashed. the crew is part of the 28th bomb wingout of south dakota's else worth air force base. they are all expected to be okay. and, this morning there's a death investigation under way at home of olivia newton john.
3:03am
a man was shot dead from a gunshot wound at her home in florida. initial reports are saying that the man was a contractor working on construction. reports also saying it was a suicide, but as of now, police aren't runing out foul play. and one of our nation's bravest heroes just scoring a big victory against the ncaa. remember we told you about this yesterday. marine steven rhodes has been cleared to play right away from middle state university football team. the defensive end served with the marines. the ncaa said he couldn't play because he took part in military only recreational only football league as he served our country. >> that's the first thing i did, thank you, lord. that's my first step towards my dream. so got to give 100% in everything i do. >> the blue raiders season opener is august 29th against western carolina. good luck to him. that's great news.
3:04am
>> congratulations, that's wonderful for him doing the right thing. meanwhile is this the right thing. after we started to put together a number of pieces regarding bengha benghazi, there were hearings on capitol hill. an advisory board reviewed everything, and then in early december, four mid-level officials with the department of state were said, go clean out your desk, turn in your badges, you're in trouble. apparently placed on administrative leave until we figure out how badly you screwed up. fast-forward half a year. john kerry figured out the facts and said they didn't do anything wrong. they can come back to work. >> nobody is wrong, nobody pays the price. after they were told to turn in their badges after thomas bickering and andrew mullin revi reviewed the case. these four mid-level employees. not susan rice, nobody higher
3:05am
up. these four mid-level employee said hey, i don't know what the heck you are talking about. we are scapegoats and now they are in legal limbo when told, come to work today. so they go in. the secretary of state that was there, is gone. she has nothing to answer for. the new secretary of state said i don't know what happened before i got here, i see no reason to get rid of them. here we are, almost a year to the day no one paid the price except the whistle-blower, he's still dealing with the demotion. >> we aren't saying there's anything wrong these guys did and something with them is being covered up, they said they didn't have anything to do with libya policy and didn't have anything to do with the events leading up to the terrorist attack on benghazi, but they've been out of a job or off the job, rather, but not out of a job for eight months until today, they'll be coming back and now, are we ever going to get to the bottom of this? sounds like we'll not be getting answers. >> no. >> and still no arrests in the case.
3:06am
i know some people very close to this and say, look, those four people were scape goets in the first place. they need to blame somebody. hillary clinton's state department, et cetera, did. they suggest the people who really should be looked at are patrick kennedy and secretary of state. and beth jones. everything that he did, mr. kennedy did, was okayed by hillary clinton. so, he was never actually interviewed regarding the security lapses there. and it does look like everybody who is around mrs. clinton, not involved here, nobody lost their job. in fact the only four people who lost their jobs over benghazi are the four people who died. >> yeah, what difference does it make. we remember that. >> exactly. >> here we are coming up on one year since the attacks. so many embatscys were hit. what have we learned, what have we done, how are we affected? the administration was absolutely affected.
3:07am
remember when word gout out that he was given the go sign. we evacuated 19 embassy, everybody out. and what about this? does that have a role in the fact that we have have not, we thought, cut off aid to egypt deskriet the coup and the up-ending of what some say was a democratic election. yes, but it turns out, there's a third option. could be, instead of yes, cut off the aid, no, we will not cut off the aid, how about we cut off the aid and don't tell anybody. we cut off the aid secretly. >> a lot of lawmakers took to the sunday shows to ask for that. why is the president secretly doing this. we mentioned this in news shows that the obama administration has done that. some are saying that then that gives the flexibility if they decide to reverse this decision. then they're not going get, you know, caught with their panties
3:08am
down, essentially. >> right. so the administration apparently is considering suspending $250 million in aid, but that 1.3 billion in military aid that we told you about. absolutely not. they're not going to do anything with that. one of the worries is given ha happened in benghazi. if we cut off the aid with the military, the military which is protecting american interests and protecting u.s. embassy over in cairo, those generals might say, you know what, americans have not done anything for us lately. go ahead. it's wide open. >> morsi allowed the embassy walls to be breached. there almost was a benghazi attack in cairo. they were almost over there and our men and women could have been held hostage. here's the thing, i don't think egypt cares about our indicate. they're getting it from qatar, from saudi arabia and believe it or not. i don't care how it happened.
3:09am
you do not wand a muslim brotherhood running any country especially egypt. that was allied when morsi took over iran. these three countries got together, because they are scratching their head about what our policy is and they formed their own network. it doesn't matter what our $1.5 billion does. >> and when you hear about the president doing this, is he basically saying, you know what, this is just going to be another blow to my administration if there is another attack or is this the right thing to do? >> yeah. good question. although, you got to figure since we've been supplying aid to egypt for close to 30 years, you know what, the gravy train, they don't want to cut off. >> they are used to it. >> it's easy money for them. meanwhile, we talked about this at the top of the program where we had to bleep that guy on television because he said something in the office that
3:10am
just bugged him so much it literally -- >> literally the office, the movie. >> it seemed inappropriate. >> how often are you beset by office rage? >> there is no paper jam. i sbaer to got, one of these days, i'm going to kick this piece of out the window. >> you and me, both, man. thing's lucky i'm not armed. >> there's a new survey that come out in british papers. over half that country apparently at least twice a day suffers with some sort of office rage where something happens where they are so angry they just can't take it. for instance, a technological thing like we saw there. the printer screws up. you can't logon or you forget your pass word. >> or over use of social networks. long smoke breaks, some of these things are things that bother you. what about catholics that suck
3:11am
up to their bosses. what about gossips at work. what bugs you at work. what makes you rage? >> how about you, steve? >> something that both irs me. here we are in the confessional, don't tell anybody. it bothers me when i see somebody on their computer that looks like they're working but they are playing solitaire. >> where is the reward in solitaire, by the way. >> they're playing -- >> i beat the machine. >> looks like the -- like tetrus with the fruit. >> do you have a rage? >> for me it's technology, too. i try not to curse, but that's one thing that gives me a potty mouth, if the printer crashes. i remember when i was just starting in this business, everything was broken all the time because our tv station was local in a small market and nothing works. >> i want to throw stuff and -- >> yeah, they were -- >> yeah, it's true. anyway, it makes me want to cry
3:12am
my eyeballs out. >> one thing, i get a stapler, and there's no staplers. i don't know why people as americans don't feel compelled to a stapler. i don't, because i'm too busy. i don't want to do it. remember it drove tiki barber crazy that bothered him more than the steeler defence, he come in and couldn't get a stapler. then he went to nbc because of that. >> you love staplers, because you are a very organized person. >> thank you, steve. >> the reason i say that, in about 45 minutes, i'm going ask him where his notes are. >> and i will have no idea. >> and i'll say where is my wheel? and i look out and he has my rundown for the show. >> i just had an epiphany. you should staple your notes to
3:13am
your coat. >> if i could find a stapler with staples, i would do that. >> not a bad idea. >> what bugs you at the office. left us know, twitter u us @foxandfriends or e-mail us at fox and friends.com. >> christian students can't pray or talk about their faith in school but art declaring god is dead is all right? how is this all right? outrages parents are going to be taking action. >> then, if you've ever seen a helicopter hovering over -- hey, that's the statue of liberty. >> that's tom petty. wonder what the relationship is? ♪ i'm free free fallin'

3:17am
parents of a georgia county public school are concerned about artwork hanging in classroom walls, specifically a drawing that says god is dead. pictures include a line from the play "the crucible" by arthur miller. the school say they are a reflect of the play not a religious statement. parents are asking if kids can't pray in school or include religion, why is it okay to hang that sign up. krista mitchell and scott pence have a daughter in the class. good morning. >> good morning. >> your daughter came home and said what hanging on the wall. >> she said there were pictures that god is dead and satan was alive. >> show found that offensive? >> it was a little misleading. what she knew of the story. of course it made a little more
3:18am
sense to her. but was misleading. >> scotty, you're upset with something like that. that god is dead, was allowed on the walls of the public school. >> the thing that gets me is it's not so much they are not allowed to pray in school. they can disappear in corners and do what they want to do. it seems to me if the school says we do not have religion in school through the academic part of things, if you're not going to teach god, or teach the good of god, you shouldn't be plastering god is dead, satan lives, there's no heaven only hell. it doesn't sound like a positive thing for kids to come in and see. you never know that you have a kid that's borderline fighting depression and that's what is hanging over his shoulder on a wall. it doesn't make a lot of sense, you know. >> after your family had complained, i guess the school board decided to do what about
3:19am
this? >> they decided to talk to the freshman and sophomores in the school an possibly help them under the art. my take on that was the kids that are coming in now should be allowed to have their own interpretation of the book "the crucible" rather than someone else's, you know, take on the book. >> it would seem to be that whoever decided it was going be okay to put those drawings up on the wall and keep them here, keep them there year after year, it would seem that person is making a determination over what the kids see. and i know in the school there is something that says "in god we trust" as well, right? >> yes, there is. >> right. >> in their defence, there's two parts to that. let me word it this way. the thing that get he's is this. say there's 15, 20 students in the classroom and if the whole classroom had the assignment to do. there's 15 or 20 drawing, there's not 15, or 20 drawings on the wall. with that being said, who made
3:20am
the decision heyer we're only going to hang the five or six, that say god's dead, satan lives, there's no heaven, there's only hell, then it raises the question if you're going to do this and hang this, how are you saying there's no religion in school? in their return defence, well, we've got "in god we trust" hanging up on other walls. that's not the same. you're not saying that we're going to preach the bible. we're not saying we're going to preach anything. zero means zero. if you're not going have it, you shouldn't have it at all. i don't think we should have religion in school. everybody has that freedom p of choice. if you're not going to have it you shouldn't be speaking bad about it either. >> scottie and crystal. thanks for joining us to tell your story. >> thank you. >> what did you think about that? meanwhile, he's admitted to gunni gunning down soldiers now nadal

3:27am
a cleric, who some people say inspired hasan to carry on the rampage. the judge allowed computer evidence, evidence that indicated that two hours before the sooth, hasan was looking at radical muslim websites and read the message, called to jihad. that's what is coming out of the court as of yesterday. today, the prosecution is very likely to rest its case. back to you guys. >> that is just so outrageous to think you can't bring up radical islam when that's actually what the defendant wants. he said i want to die for this cause. s it ate reason i get it and the judge is not allowing the defendant to say the reason behind the murders that he admitted committing. >> at the same time, that's giving him a platform if the judge lets him do that. >> he's got a platform if the judge represents himself. >> thank you for the live report from texas. keep in mind, this is not

3:34am
because at one point one of the officials told the editor, okay, we've had your fun. now we want your stuff back. so the guardian newspaper is deciding, okay, you wanted to expose and start a dialogue in this country about the level of privacy. you've done your ldialogue, now it comes to an end. his mate, his partner, i'm thinking, sailor -- >> there you go. >> his partner, evidently, is a guy that helps him out all of the time with stories and he was also detained at the airplane and questioned by british authorities and we got a heads-up for nine hours, under what he's allowed to do under section 7 terrorist law in britain about different material that he had on him that would actually pertain to some of the information that edward snowden provided to this journalist. so we know that snowden stole his information. we know greenwald reported on
3:35am
this information and published it as much as possible so the british are going out of their way to stop the bleeding. we're fully weighed in on this. >> we're read in on it. >> but the obama administration, are they coming forward and saying whether they support this or are against this detention? no. they are staying no. if it weren't for edward snowden, this wouldn't be a national conversation, we want a balance between surveillance, security, and liberty and we also want to know if we're being spite on and it also make us think what happened with the department of justice and our very own james rosen, is this what happens when journalists are doing their job? >> it does look for some that they would detain this guy for nine hours at the airport. we can toll you for nine hours. i saw statistic, less than .1% of held more than six hours, they held this guy three hours
3:36am
longer than that. and for some it looks like retaliation or intimidation guy the government. hey, glenn greenwald, if you mess with us, we'll mess with your family. if they're messing with the family, that's not a good thing. if the guy was a courier an apparently they did go ahead and take some of his electronic gear. if he was a currier, then it gets a little murkier. they're trying to clamp down on this guy's family, that's not good. >> he was delivering something for a movie on the whole snowden situation. nine hours is the maximum they can hold someone. is there a terror act in britain? we'll find out. snowden is still living in russia. he has a lot of information he stole when he worked at dell and another agency with a government contract. he did it and he's going to continue to leak it. >> he said i have a lot of information that i haven't shared. united states, you better look

grandson take on this gator? were you nervous? >> no, not at all, sir. he's done several hundred over the years. i won't let him get in danger. i won't let him get into a position where he'll get hurt or bruised or banged up. it's safety first and foremost and once we have the alligator and we have him exhausted, i can control with my weight and joey -- i can hold his mouth. >> brian: for people that only see alligators at the zoo, what would you say is the key to seeing an alligator out in the wild and suppressing it? how do you approach it, joey? >> i don't really know. >> in the wild, i don't know that that would be a problem. >> brian: you go from behind, right? >> yes. >> brian: how do you exhaust him >> tell them what you do. >> we put the snare on them and

4:02am
magazine. today we got anna kooiman in for gretch. >> anna: great to be here. >> steve: we got a lot to talk about. >> anna: let's get to the headlines. the first one is a fox news alert. this is overnight, a brand-new report that the united states has secretly cut off aid to egypt amid the unrest there. that's according to democratic senator pat leahy. the white house refused to definitively say whether it believes morsi's ouster was a coup or not. about $585 million has not been disbursed yet. former disney star and actor lee thompson young died in an parent suicide. police found his body with a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside his los angeles home. officers went to check on him after he didn't show up for
4:03am
work. young rose to fame after the show "the famous jetson." he was 29 years old. airport temporarily shutting down flights of the b-1 b bomber after a firey crash on monday. the two pilots and two weapon systems officers were able to eject from the aircraft before it went down in a remote area of montana. the crew was part of the 28th bomb wing out of south dakota's air force base. they are all expected to be okay. the cause of the crash is still under investigation. today the white house president obama will honor the perfect season. he's hosting the 1972 miami dolphins team. it's more than 40 years since they went 17-0. the only nfl team to go undefeated. there are more than 40 living dolphins players and also coaches. nearly all of them are going to be attending, including don
4:04am
shula, hosting championship teams at the white house. this has become a tradition until the late 1970s and the watergate scandal was taking place at that time. those are your headlines. >> steve: that's why they're honoring them today, because of watergate back in the 1970s? finance apparently. >> brian: last minute. i don't think that will ever be broken, the undefeated season. now let's talk about what's happened in benghazi when it comes to the investigation on the united states and who dropped the ball and when didn't and what happened. they did an extensive look into this, an internal investigation, the administration commissioned with admiral mullen and mr. pickering. they look into it and decide that the best thing for them to do is identify four mid level state department employees and suspend them. it's your fault, essentially saying, is and it never got high enough to under secretary or secretary of state. you guys didn't do a good job. you're out. until today.
4:05am
>> steve: that's right. today we're waking up with the news that the four -- remember, nobody at the higher echelons, nobody at the state department, including the secretary of state, in trouble in any way. they had to punish those four mid-level people. but today we're waking up to the news that john kerry, since he's taken over as secretary of state, has reviewed the complete account and has determined that those people did absolutely nothing wrong. they're free to return to their job. this includes former deputy assistant secretary raymond maxwell who -- he was never told why he was on administrative leave. eric boswell and department assistant assistant secretary charlene lamb, she was in charge of security in benghazi and she is back at work. not the same job, but she's back at work because, according to john kerry, did nothing wrong. >> anna: but maybe they did and maybe they didn't do anything
4:06am
wrong, but could they potentially just be scapegoats in this and could this be part of the plan all along? the bad thing is, yes, they're back at work. they've been out of work since december. so it's been, what, eight months or so, about a year 'til the anniversary of the benghazi attacks. they've been publicly identified and humiliated and some of these guys were their friends. in fact, who you mentioned there, raymond maxwell says ambassador chris stevens who was among the four innocent americans who lost their lives was a good friend of his and he's been partially blamed for this. >> steve: right. and those ultimately right at this point, almost a year later, those four men right there, the only four who lost their jobs over what happened in benghazi because they were all killed. we had heard it was mid-level people. nobody at the top. ye did that review board with pickering and mullen, they never interviewed patrick kennedy, one
4:07am
of the top people in the department of state. he was essentially working with hillary clinton, whatever he did, she signed off on. they never interviewed him. so how could they say nobody did anything wrong with this? it does seem a little too convenient. nobody lost their job. it's going to make a perfect entraa into presidential campaign much easier for hillary clinton if nobody got in trouble. >> brian: we know the intercepts and know exactly who killed our people. we know these were terrorist groups. we know where they were located and we could have apprehended them within days of the attack, but no one -- we got three blurry pictures to go for. they have not been brought to justice. i have not seen anyone in the administration say it's my fervent belief and goal to bring them to justice, i'm going to get to the bottom of this. the president never talks about it. he looks at it as a republican attack as a scandal.
4:08am
>> steve: it's a phony scandal. >> brian: not saying there is not more plans for the 9-11 attack when that day comes up at our embassies around the country. we saw all our embassies be evacuated last week and we know it affects us because look at our policy in egypt. we're worried about them not securing our facility this time with 9-11 coming up if we cut off their military. now let's talk about another major story here that we discussed and around the country. it's not just about the nypd, it's the stop, question and frisk. we know that commissioners credit went on every show on sunday. he said, let me explain to you what stop and frisk is and how this judge is out of line saying the way it is instituted, there needs to be another layer of oversight. it's wrong. you get rid of this. people will die. if you don't believe the commissioner, you don't believe the mayor, you don't believe the cops here in new york city, would you believe the criminals? >> steve: yeah.
4:09am
exactly. so they had this yesterday at city hall or the cop shop, they showed some of the 254 guns in the biggest gun bust in the city's history. they also revealed that there was a wire tap where a suspect, 23-year-old suspect from south carolina, i believe, he was wire tapped saying look, up there, we got something -- stop and frisk. so he would not take the guns into brooklyn, but instead, dropped them off in manhattan. >> brian: they had intercepts. >> steve: exactly right. so essentially the truth that that judge and a number of democrats running for mayor that they will deny that stop and frisk works if you listen to the suspect who says he didn't bring the guns in because of this. >> anna: look at all these guns that are off the streets. they said they were concerned about all this. in fact, the commissioner ray kelly also mentioned under
4:10am
bloomberg's reign, there were 7300 fewer murders happening during that time than in the previous 11 years. also commissioner kelly pointed out that -- i just read this in the post yesterday that nypd looks like the people here, of every race, shape, size, color, you name it. he also said that minorities are really who are going to be hurt a lot by the rescinding of this. take a listen. >> the losers in this if this case is allowed to stand are people who live in minority communities. 97% of the shooting victims in new york city last year were people of color. the 11 years, full years of mayor bloomberg's term, if you compare those 11 years to the previous 11 years, there has been 7363 less murders, fewer
4:11am
murders. so if history is any guide, clearly, those lives saved are largely the lives of people of color. we're saving lives. that's what we're engaged in. we just had a center for disease control study come out that sudden new york city has the lowest ratio of teen-agers carrying guns than any city in america. >> steve: you got to wonder whether or not, since we do have on a wiretap one of the bad guys, one of the ailed gun smugglers saying, i'm not going to go into new york city's brooklyn because of stop and frisk, you got to wonder if that -- after that judge threw it out, you know, why not? let's go. >> brian: it is modified. the supreme court said it's constitutional. let's hope they get it back. meanwhile, red light cameras are supposed to bust the people that run red lights, right? turns out those eyes in the sky are going after drivers who did nothing wrong. >> steve: not the gum chewers
4:12am
again. and president obama has been back in washington for just one day and he's already planning on hitting the road to push his agenda. shouldn't he be sticking around to help unite congress? we have the governor next. stick around what makes your family smile? backflips and cartwheels. love, warmth. here, try this. backflips and camm, ok!s. ching! i like the fact that there's lots of different tastes going on. mmmm! breakfast i'm very impressed. this is a great cereal! honey bunches of oats. i hear you crunching. wit's hard to find contractors with the passion and the skill,

4:15am
>> steve: president obama returns to washington and to a divided congress. but instead of working with congressional lawmakers to heal political rifts that certainly are evident in dc and get important legislation passed, instead, he's hitting the road for a two-day bus tour promoting his agenda. >> brian: reaching across the aisle, scott walker here to weigh in. you surprised the president is going to go on the bus tour campaign-like? >> unfortunately, not surprised considering where this president has been in the past.
4:16am
if you want to get something done, we have a big budget showdown looping here. we've got major problems in the middle east and egypt. this is the time when you need to sit down f you're a chief executive, sit down with your legislative body. in wisconsin, every wednesday morning, i meet early with the legislative leadership and then meet all morning with lawmakers in both political parties 'cause that's how you figure out how to get things done. despite the things we did with unions, 96% of the bills i signed into law were passed by republicans and democrats and that's what you got to do. you got to meet with them. >> steve: you do. but don't you think the president really has his eye on the mid terms already? >> oh, yeah. there is talk, even when i was at the white house in february, i could sense the feeling was that they were hoping they could take the sequester and put that burden on the house and somehow flip things. last few months since then, if anything, it's gone the opposite direction. >> steve: that sequester was the end of the world, wasn't it in. >> ironically, the flip is after max baucus' announcement after
4:17am
calling obamacare a train wreck, they're worried about losing the senate. more than anything, i think he's trying to hold up the senate in the midterm election. >> anna: what kind of disservice is this to the american people? the approval rating for both the president and congress have been plummeting lately. >> the for years washington and congress, folks in our nation's capitol always have low ratings 'cause they don't get things done. that's a contrast with state houses. but it's events like this where you have an opportunity. you can bring people in early instead of waiting 'til days before the shutdown looming and unfortunately, that's what people cynically expect out of washington. it's about time somebody says no. we need to have a different approach. the president, whether i vote ford him or not, the president is still the leader of this country and he's the one that needs to step up. >> brian: the rnc has a series of meetings up in boston and they made it public that they disagree, especially with chris christie and rand paul bicker
4:18am
bickering. chris christ says we are not a debating saying. we are a political operation that needs to win. what philosophy best suits you, governor walker? >> good politics. i put policy first. i think people want good leadership. even though the president got reelected by a significant margin, particularly in key swing states, almost every one of those key swing states is now today governed by republican governors. >> brian: you could say republican governors stabilized the economy to allow the president to win. >> there is no doubt about it. look at wisconsin and illinois, michigan and ohio, florida, think about florida. rick scott came in and the unemployment rate is 4 1/2, five points lower than when he first took office. the economic turn around in those key swing states happened more because republican leadership in the states than what's happening in washington. >> steve: it sounds like you see the opportunity for growth, as does senator rand paul. here he is on fox news sunday talk being how you bring some of the libertarians in, that's good
4:19am
for the republicans. watch. >> it's big enough for both of us, big enough for a lot of different republicans and, in fact, we don't need to -- this all started with him saying we don't have room for libertarian republicans. the thing is that's how we grow our party. >> brian: you're not going to announce if you're running or not. yet you think it's way too early. you think it's too early for them and hillary clinton to be saying that? >> on the republican side it's too early. it's a disservice to the party and the country. we've got 36 races for governor next year. you've got a u.s. senate where we've got a real chance to get a majority, keep the house. you get the senate back, then whomever the nominee is in 2016 has a real opportunity, he or she on the republican side can ultimately come in and say, we can turn america around just like these republican governors and legislative leaders have done across the country. >> anna: it gets earlier and earlier. >> got to focus on 2014.
4:20am
>> steve: whose desk did you get this stapler off? it looks like cavuto's. >> i worked my way through after seeing that segment out there. i go crazy overt electronic stuff. i'm going to look around and make sure there are staples. >> brian: any time you fill autopsy stapler, you're helping brian kilmeade. >> steve: straight ahead on this tuesday, it's the miraculous moment a little boy hears for the first time mom. >> i hear that! >> good job! yes. >> steve: his story. he joins us live with his mother coming up next. he hears her. >> brian: and who do you think earns the most cash? tom or giselle? this is what i wake up thinking about. it's them against the world. >> anna: i just want to look at the video. >> brian: the salaries just revealed. is this just her relaxing

4:24am
>> brian: time for news by the numbers. first, 400. that's the number of jobs lost in pennsylvania because of the epa's anti-coal agenda. guess who is upset? a union boss. he claims two coal plants recently closed because they couldn't afford to follow the new regulations. and $15 per hour. that will be the new minimum wage in seattle if lawmakers get their way. it's 9.19, which is already the highest minimum wage in the country. critics say it will force retailers to cut jobs. and $42 million. that's how much giselle earned last year, making her the highest paid model in the world. also more than her husband, three time super bowl champ who lost his last two.

4:26am
hearing as well in his left ear. >> steve: so your doctor said what? >> he said you need to have further evaluations to see if he's a candidate for cochlear implant. we went to the children's clinic in jacksonville and had an evaluation and he was a detainee. so we had the surgery at the end of june and the activation was done mid july. >> steve: so that's the image we're seeing that we just showed where he says, i can hear you, i can hear you. that's over a period of days and weeks, they turn it up very sloely, don't they? >> yes, exactly. >> steve: so that's the first time he had heard you since he was what, four, five months old? >> yes. to hear us clearly, yeah, 'cause he kept losing his hearing. it was so nice for him to be able to hear us again. >> steve: how does that make you feel? >> we're just thrilled. we feel so lucky that there is this technology and that our child can live a normal life now 'cause he can hear. >> steve: he is a normal boy.

>> brian: wow. time for your shot of the morning. attempting to break a death defying world record on his motorcycle. watch as he blasts through a tunnel of fire longer than a football field, temperatures reached 2,000 degrees. the new video taken moments before he crashed and was rushed to the hospital. where he remains hospitalized with third degree burns but is expected to make a full recovery. >> steve: that is crazy. >> brian: whose idea was that? >> anna: longer than a football field? are you kidding me? >> steve: 2,000 degrees. >> brian: doesn't that motorcycle use gas? >> steve: that's a good point. unless there was a gigantic ramp. i don't know. you're the sports guy. >> anna: when i first saw that, i thought it didn't seem like it was that big of a deal. you know the warrior races where people run across hot coals, all three of us did the thing out on the plaza where you got shocked with electricity and stuff.
4:33am
but this is -- as long as a football field. this poor man! it doesn't look like there is a ramp back there. no ramp, maybe electric. i don't know. >> brian: so let's take a look at the headlines. we have a special guest. >> anna: that's right. a dead body found at the home of olivia newton john. police trying to figure out what happened. a man was found shot dead from a gunshot wound at olivia newton-john's home in florida. he was a contractor work on construction and may have taken his own life. police are not ruling out foul play. >> steve: there is another health scare this morning for vice president joe biden's son. the delaware attorney general is waking up in a hospital in houston this morning after feeling disoriented and weak. it happened during a family vacation last week. the 44-year-old had a mild stroke in 2010. he also served a year in iraq back in 2008 with the national guard. this morning he's in houston. >> brian: all right. read this.
4:34am
>> steve: cnn's latest hire being met with strong criticism. they announced courtney sexton has been hired as the senior director for its films unit. she was a main force behind liberal documentaries like al gore's "an inconvenient truth" and jimmy carter, "man from plains." they say the move shows cnn's upcoming documentary on hillary clinton will be one sided propaganda. >> brian: i read now. 9-year-old new york boy won the library club reading contest for the fifth year in a row. instead of being congratulated, he's being told to step aside. the director says tyler weaver hogs the competition and should be banned. that's the winner. the self-proclaimed king of the reading club, he reads 63 books between june 24 and august 3. he's won every year since he was in kindergarten. they are saying if he doesn't step aside, they'll give everybody who enters or have a
4:35am
different way of judging who the top reader is. >> steve: apparently the library director thought she would -- maybe we should change the rules, but because his mother brought this to the attention of the local media, he's the winner. >> anna: congratulations to him. that's lot of books. 35 minutes after the hour. a new report finds that many drivers, we've long thought yellow lights go too quick. is it all part to catch drivers on those red light cameras? reporter theresa priolo is live in new jersey with more. good morning. >> hey, good morning. this is an issue that you will find new jersey people griping about all across the state. why does the yellow light turn so quickly? until this point it was really just something to complain about. now there appears to be proof. let's take the intersection behind me which is here in jersey city. this is one of the intersections where there is a red light camera. the camera here is -- the red light, or the yellow light
4:36am
should be three seconds. but one put a camera here to record how quickly the light changes and found it 2.8 seconds. that may not seem like a big deal to anybody who hasn't been caught running a remain in this community. however, it really is, especially if you're the one left with the ticket. the assemblyman leading this charge says 30% of all people ticketed are caught within the first quarter second of the light turning. this is big bucks for municipalities. and we'll see what happens. the dot is investigating. back to you. >> steve: thank you very much. let's go out to maria molina with a look at the day ahead in the weather. >> good morning. i want to start out across parts of the west because out here we do have issues. we have a number of wildfires that continue to burn. we have conditions that are not good for firefighters to continue to combat the wildfires out here. we have a number of red flag warnings in effect and fire weather watches. low humidity, gusty winds in excess of 35 miles per hour and even possible lightning from several thunderstorms that could
4:37am
fire up. it's a big concern out west. otherwise heavy rain expected again across parts of the southeast with several inches of rain in the forecast and temperature wise, we're talking summer back in the picture across sections of the midwest into the northeast. temperatures in the upper 80s and also widespread 90s. >> steve: the dog days of summer. thank you. >> brian: he ruled the pro wrestling ring for years as the total package. that's what they called him. back stage, he was drowning in a world of alcohol and drugs and addiction. he was found in prison, found god and became paralyzed. he says his faith helped hut his life back on track. lex lugar shares himself in this book. >> steve: good morning to you. >> good morning. thanks for having me on. >> steve: what a story you've got. >> yes. >> steve: you were at absolutely the top of the wrestling world, but behind the scenes we had no idea of the personal hell you had fallen into. >> yeah.
4:38am
sort of a good lesson for young people hopefully that read the book that we reap what we sow. it's a universal principle. everything seemed like it was going wonderful. behind the scenes i was make bad choices in who i was hanging with and all unraveled with. >> anna: what were some of the things you were doing and what did you lose because of it? >> drug, alcohol, women, and i lost my family. i had a beautiful wife and two kids. one guy said, you didn't lose them, you gave them up. he said i was chase ago life of folly. >> brian: you got a lot of money, unbelievable shape, playing to packed arenas. so you had all the trappings of fame and fortune. what was the allure that was -- you weren't prepared for? >> well, i think with anybody, i'd go home, play the good father and husband in atlanta where i lived and get on the road and i guess i didn't have any accountability. there was always temptation out there. i didn't have the accountability
4:39am
in my life to somebody or something. for me now it's god. to really sit me down and go, what are you doing, that i felt i had to answer to. >> steve: it caught up with you 'cause you wound up spending four months in jail. but the good news is you met somebody who changed your life. >> i did. i met a chaplain in jail and stubborn me, i didn't make a decision to change my life at that point. but he pursued me outside of jail. pastor steve baskin. very special friend. he didn't try to share like religion with me 'cause i didn't grow up with religion. so he just became my friend and ended up eventually sharing the good news with me and on april 23 of 06, my life was supernaturally changed. >> anna: wow. you say you're really trying to repair all those relationships that you lost. that ego that you mentioned that was just this wild, huge ego, also brought you some success. how can people manage that in their own lives, whether it's financial success or fame or what have you? >> balance. i call it the sand versus the
4:40am
rock. what are you building your life on. that you have faith in god, love your family and your friends and for me, it's having balance. >> brian: how did you hurt your back? >> it actually was my neck. i sat the wrong way in an airplane for a long period of time with my head turned and due to my -- long story short, my neurologist said all my muscle i had then and all my injuries normal from football and wrestling career, bone spur, i cut the blood flow off to my central cord. woke up the next morning paralyzed. thought i was dehydrated. being the athlete. >> steve: i need water. >> yeah. it wasn't. no, i needed more than water. i went to shepherd center atlanta. they gave me a 0 to 5% of any movement from the neck down. so what i can do today is incredible. i'm very thankful. >> brian: great to hear your story and hear your comeback

mr. kilmeade. >> brian: does your boss have the right to ask you how much booze you drink? thanks to obamacare, employers at penn state university will have to reveal their drinking habits and other invasive medical information or face a $1,200 fine. yep. one hundred dollars a month. the reason? the university wants to cash in on government incentives offered in the health care bill. the associate professor at penn state is here and has been forced to deal with these invasive questions. how do you feel, number one, about this new policy? >> i think it's invasion of our privacy. i think that penn state in trying to customers us to turn this information over has crossed an ethical line. >> brian: in what respect? >> i would be fired if i forced my students to take this. but penn state thinks it's above the rules. they're forcing this to turn over. >> brian: professor, this is what you're faced with. these are the questions you have to answer. here is one, tell me what you think, have you had five or more alcohol drinks in a single sitting over the last six
4:47am
months? okay? over the last two weeks, have you felt down, depressed or hopeless? so wait a second. so they're trying to figure out do you have a depression issue, which could cost money; that could be additional medical cost through a health care policy. they could want to find out do i have a potential alcoholic on my hands. technically, that should not affect my employment. >> they say it's going to be kept confidential. my concern is we turn this over to web md and they can sell it. while they say they're protecting us, we don't have a choice to participate because of these draconian fines they're imposing. this isn't just obamacare because this really isn't forced by obamacare. this is something that penn state is voluntarily choosing to do for reasons we can't understand. >> brian: we do know that the cost of their health care plans are going up. >> everyone's health care costs are going up. in this case, penn state stands alone. 5% of employers penalize their workers for not taking part in the wellness plan.
4:48am
>> brian: how many employees are dealing with this? >> tens of thousands of employees have to face this. >> brian: these are massive changes, but financially where maybe some companies can eat this, these companies like penn state absolutely feels this. here is what they've said. that's changes may seem like bold attention for a university. however, these serious health care funding challenges leave penn state no choice but to move ahead as planned. your reaction, professor? >> it's important president obama oint tout every corporation is dealing with medical inflation. virtually no corporation has decided to impose $1,200 per year fines on its employees because they refuse to take part in a web m.d. survey. >> brian: you don't know what's exactly behind this. what do you think is behind this? >> i think they believe it will save money, but they haven't done the research because this wellness program has mixed results. this might cost more money than save. so penn state is not only doing something i think fiscally
4:49am
irresponsible, but i think in the end, they're invading their employees' privacy and not aloying us to make a choice if we want to participate or not. >> brian: will you answer these questions? >> i will answer them and i will give them nonsense answers. >> brian: you will give nonsense answers. >> according to my survey, three feet eight-inches tall and i weigh 50 pounds. they can force me to fill it out burks can't force me to disclose my private information. >> brian: your move, penn state.

4:54am
again, management training program, really good for recent college graduates because it's just right now still -- these college kids aren't finding work right now. very frustrating that we're still here. but i'm here. >> anna: exactly. you're helping us out. amazon is adding some 7,000 jobs. that's huge. >> it is. 5,000 of these are full time. the other 2,000 are going to be part-time, maybe seasonal. this is their destruction centers. phoenix, san antonio, indianapolis. they really -- the salaries are better than average retail positions. a lot of the work, you got to be prepared to work in like a factory setting and distribution center. it can be laborious versus tanning in the store selling shirts to your friends and family and customers. this is one of those jobs that you're going to really have to work at it. but they do have benefits as well. >> anna: okay. and next up, trw automotive, based in michigan, which the cost of living there is lower. >> that's trying to lure people to come back to michigan.
4:55am

officials say a man on board flight 265 to austin last night tried opening two emergency exits on the back of the plane, but flight attendants were able to pull him away. the flight made an emergency landing in memphis and the suspect was taken into custody. investigators say the man did not appear to be intoxicated or unruly and nobody was hurt there. another health care this morning for vice president joe biden's son, beau. the delaware attorney general is waking up in a hospital in houston after feeling disoriented and weak. it happened during a family vacation last week. the 44-year-old had a mild stroke in 2010. he also served a year in iraq in 2008-2009 with the national guard. here we are, scary moments for actor dick van dyke. he was driving on a los angeles freeway when all of a sudden, his car caught on fire. >> it just started making a noise. i thought i had a flat at first. then it started smoking.
5:03am
then it burned to a crisp. not only that, there was a fireman and nurse and a cop just happened to be passing by. >> wow. >> somebody is looking after me. >> anna: three good samaritans rushed to pull the 87-year-old out of that burning car. after the incident, he tweeted a picture of his jaguar with the caption, used jag for sale, real cheap. miraculous story out of australia. a mother of two brought back to life after being declared clinically dead for 42 minutes. after suffering a major heart attack, vanessa was rushed to the hospital where doctors pronounced her dead. this morning she's alive and well thanks to a new high-tech cpr machine called thumper. while the machine kept blood flow to her brain, surgeons were able to shock her heart back into a normal rhythm. unbelievable. >> brian: it is. is the reporter who helped expose the nsa scandal now a
5:04am
government target? his partner was detained and questioned for hours. he's not a journalist, but always helps out his life mate. this morning we know the u.s. knew about the plan ahead of time. doug mckelway live at the white house. >> yeah, his name is david miranda, the partner of guardian journalist glenn greenwald. as he was attempt to go join him in brazil sunday, he was detained by british authorities. he was held for several hours. his laptop and all electronic devices were confiscated from him. he says he was asked, quote, about his entire life and in the aftermath of that detention, the white house said that it was forewarned about the detention. >> there was a heads up that was provided by the british government. again, this is something that we had an indication was likely to occur, but it's not something that we've requested and it's something that was done
5:05am
specifically by the british law enforcement. >> some have criticized the white house for not intervening trying to halt the detention. another example, some critics say, of the white house being less than transparent about these kinds of surveillance programs. >> i think the white house has lost credibility and i think the government generally has been operating with a definite sit of trust in the area of surveillance for the past few years. they've been saying one thing publicly to congress and to the courts and it turns out that quite another thing has been taking place behind closed doors. >> the british home office issued a statement about miranda's detention shortly afterwards. it said in part, quote, if the police believe that an individual is in possession of highly sensitive stolen information that would help terrorism, then they should act and the law provides them with a framework to do that. those who oppose this sort of action need to think about what they are condoning. the editor of the guardian has
5:06am
admitted the british government threatened legal action against that newspaper unless they either returned all of the documents that snowden provided to greenwald or destroyed them. back to you, brian. >> brian: all right. thanks a lot. comprehensive. here is the thing, edward snowden stole them. he brought a thumb drive in, stole all this information, no doubt about it. it's compromised our security. it's strained our relations with other nation, some of which are friendly and gave great knowledge to our enemy, terrorists, who have altered the way in which they communicate. if this reporter has that in his possession, if, in fact, he does, is it our right to get our stuff back and to stop the bleeding? >> steve: here is the thing, there are a lot of people who feel like it's a good thing we know what the government is doing, what the government is spying on us. but what's extraordinary about this is they stopped that guy right there, that miranda guy, for nine hours. they said under the terrorism
5:07am
act in great britain, it wasn't counterterrorism at all. to some it looks like retaliation and intimidation by the u.k. government that works closely with our government. if that guy was a courier, he had some more stolen american files and stuff like that, i get that. but if they were simply trying to intimidate a family member of glenn greenwald that, is not good. >> brian: schedule 7 under the terrorism act, they're allowed to question a guy like him for up to nine hours. they took the full nine hours. >> steve: did it look like terrorism? >> brian: did he have intelligence with him? he had something with him. they evidently still have it. >> steve: all right. we're going to be talk being that throughout the day here on the channel. meantime, it was back in december when the department of state, they had this internal review and figured out, you know with a? with benghazi, there was some problems. so what we're going to do is tell four mid-level employees, not the people at the top, hillary clinton and her immediate deputies -- we're
5:08am
going to tell these four mid-level people to clean out their desk and hand over their badges. john kerry now fast forward is secretary of state. he's reviewed all the stuff and he has declared that, you know what? they can come back to work. they did nothing wrong. they're going to get reassigned, but none the less, they can come back to the department of state. >> anna: is this just kind of part of the plan all along, just wait a little while until it blows over? they were put out of a job in december, so it's been eight months now. was this just -- were they used as scapegoat, these men and women? they say they had nothing to do with the events leading up to benghazi. >> steve: charlene lamb was in charge of the security there in benghazi. >> anna: they did have a bit of policy involvement with libya, but they say not a ton. again, mid-level, not the top. we haven't seen any arrests from any of this. these people, yes, they're back on the job, which is good for
5:09am
them. they feel i imagine. but they have been publicly humiliated and targeted and identified as being responsible in some ways over the last eight months. >> brian: tom pickering and admiral mullen put together a report that the administration accepted and embraced and they concluded that these mid-level guys didn't tell the people above them. all right. so they were relieved temporarily. told to hand in their badges. then they got word yesterday, come to work on tuesday. so who is right? was it a bad report, bad conclusions put together by mullen and pickering, or are they being ignored now by the secretary of state kerry, which means that he has a better inquiry, better than the one that was commissioned by the administration? by the way, have you ever seen an administration who is so aggressive with drone attacks in pakistan, we find out even in yemen, we don't seem to have any interest in getting the people that killed our guys on 9-11 in benghazi. we have a blurry picture. >> steve: you know what? we know who they are.
5:10am
we've identified them. yet we do nothing. perhaps part of it has to do with the fact that there is some national -- it's hard to prosecute some of these people given the national security situation as it is right now. >> brian: 'cause they have nowhere to put them. >> steve: that's my point. can't send them to gitmo. this administration wants to close them down. it will be hard to drone them. remember, we heard -- don't blame hillary clinton. what matter does that make. extraordinarily, they did not interview a number of her top deputies, including patrick kennedy, who everything that he signed off on regarding benghazi, she ok'd. why did the review board never talk to him? that seems kind of crazy, doesn't it? >> brian: it does. real quick when it comes to egypt, it's affecting our policy there. we're afraid to cut off our $1.4 billion because we feel as though the military will get mad at us and not protect our embassy with 9-11 just around
5:11am
the corner like they did so terribly last year. they breached our fences. there was a sense that they were going to get into our embassy in cairo. now the muslim brotherhood is gone. the military is something we've always supported. we cut them off. they could let our guy sit out there naked. >> anna: real quick, we're learning this morning that the president has cut off some of that military aid secretly and critics are saying -- >> brian: what's the point. >> anna: in secret is because then he has the flexibility to go back and change it in the future. >> brian: in secret. >> steve: let's tell you about this, there is a school where on the wall they've got some art work that says god is dead. and one of the kids in the school -- there it is right there -- they say that's all part of arthur miller's play "the crucible" and that's depicted and some families were amazed that that was allowed given the fact that you can't pray in school. but you can put god is dead on the wall? we had some of the parents on "fox & friends" earlier. they don't think it's quite
5:12am
right. >> it just seems to me that if the school is going to say, we do not have religion in school. we do not have it through the academic part of things, and if you're not going to teach god and you're not going to teach the good of god, then i don't believe you should be plastering god is dead, satan lives and there is no heaven, there is only hell. it doesn't sound like a very positive thing for kids to come in and see. >> anna: it happened in newton county, georgia. the school is saying they have absolutely no plans of taking down the art work. that that's what it is, is student art work and they can put it up there. yet at the same time, we hear other school systems saying in the pledge of allegiance, let's take out one nation under god. >> steve: down at that school what they're doing is going to he explain to all the students the reason we've got these god is dead signs up on the wall is because it's all part of a play. what do you think? >> brian: write us. we all have twitter accounts.
5:13am
coming up straight ahead. steve, you read. >> steve: thank you at kilmeade. 2 plus 2 no longer has to equal 4. students can get answers wrong and still get credit. we were talking about this yesterday. the debate over our nation's controversial new curriculum standards coming up. >> brian: then what drives you crazy at the office? >> this is a paper jam! i swear to god, i put this out the window! >> anna: keep sending us all your e-mails and tweets. we'll be reading a bunch of those in just a bit too big. too small. too soft. too tasty.

>> anna: 16 minutes after the hour. talk about trouble with our schools, under new education standards, students can get any answer wrong and get a passing grade. >> 3 times 4 was 11. if they were able to explain their reasoning and explain how they came up with their answer really in words and in oral explanations. and they showed it in the picture if they just got the final number wrong, we're really focusing on the how. >> anna: everybody has been fired up on this on social media. do you agree? joining me for a fair and balanced debate amber winkler, research director at the thomas b. fordham institute, and a former teacher. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> anna: whitney, i'm going to start with you. shouldn't kids want to strive to get the right answer and achieve to do their best? >> they should. we should be teaching children to work hard to strive to get the best answer. obviously problem solving and critical thinking is important,
5:18am
but there is an end goal in mind. it's getting the right answer. we tonight want to raise a generation of children who think they can talk their way out of a paper bag but never find the right answer. >> anna: amber we don't want to breed a nation of bsers, right? but you say that there have been all sorts of silly things that have been put out by the schools, but this is not necessarily one of them. why do you defend it? >> yeah. a lot of people are saying this is for -- this is because of the common core standards, which is voluntarily standards that states have come together to adopt in english and reading and math. this has nothing to do with the common core standards. it's just a big political ruse. the standards that are in place are actually better than the standards in 48 of our states. so really what we're look at here is a bunch of misinterpretation of the standards that a lot of states are adopting and so if this is what schools are teaching, they are not actually reading the standards that they have in front of them.
5:19am
this is just a bunch of hooey, frankly. these standards are more rigorous than what we have in place. they're voluntary, they're state led. a lot of people want to act like they're federal curriculum and it's not true. so the people that -- the states that have voluntarily closen to implement these standards have read the standards because they're great and they're going to do vastly better for our kids than what we have in place. >> anna: you're saying what this person said in the video that we just showed obviously still wants them to get the right answer. that's better than getting the wrong answer and being a able to explain your way out. >> absolutely. a lot of vendors are saying they're align to the common core standard, but they haven't read them. so a lot of these schools are saying they're aligned to the common core and they're not. tey this is good curriculum, these are bad curriculum. the common core are good standards. i hope they don't go down for politics and stupidity. >> anna: wendy, what do you
5:20am
think? 45 of our 50 states have signed on to this. >> 45 of the 50 states applied for a race to the top funding. but a lot of them applied before the standards were released. so to say these states knew what they were buying into when they got it is one thing. she's right, there are standards and these people are buying package curriculum. but i think that's what you run into when you have this nationally special interest driven set of standards and states are trying to figure out how they're going to implement them and what process to do with it with and they have limited resources. >> anna: thank you for your time. we want a nation of problem solvers, but we want the right answer for sure. thanks so much. 20 minutes after the hour now on your tuesday morning. a hollywood death mystery. a man shot dead and found in olivia newton john's home. the new details straight ahead. and then she was attacked by a black bear not once, but twice. wait until you hear how she escapes because the experts say what she did was the worst thing you can do. maybe we'll get some advice on

5:45am
period? >> yeah. she has had positive effects on her health and general well-being through awele of -- all of this. it benefited her greatly. >> brian: dr. vaughn, we know chris christie said i'm going to help this family out. i'm going to help them. you're not going to smoke this. they'll ingest this. that was one thing. do you have concerns about children getting medical marijuana for their medical conditions? >> yes. marijuana is a potentially harmful drug and it does have an addictive potential. there are certain specific chemicals in marijuana that do have specific therapeutic effects. but they should be studied through research protocols and used according to standard medical procedures. for example, there is one that is available now that can be prescribed. it's gone through all of the scientific rigor and can be made available to children with that
5:46am
scientific rigor. >> brian: you shook your head, brandon. why? >> that drug is a derivative of cannibus. it's a synthetic form of this. >> brian: and you don't feel it would have been effective for michaela? >> it could potentially have been effective, but erin and i believe that all of the compounds found in this plant have benefited her greatly all in unison. not just singularly. >> brian: do you think, doctor, studies like this, when you see a young child get better because of the use of marijuana, isn't that a study in itself? >> well, there are other forms of marijuana in medicinal forms that have been tested, according to scientific rigor. for example, there is one which is an inhalable extract of marijuana which does contain all of the active ingredients in marijuana. that's available in canada and europe and could potentially be available in the united states.
5:47am
the trouble with crude marijuana is that it can be very toxic. it can be addictive and it can be a gateway drug to a lot of adolescents and many adolescents and even children now are using it as early as eight and ten years old, smoking marijuana. they will go on to develop more severe addictive disorders and many of them will suffer consequences, either directly as a result of abusing marijuana or because as a gateway drug, they will use other harder drugs and there is a morbid iterate -- morbidity rate associated with marijuana. >> brian: thanks so much for joining us and sharing your real life stories and the real life concerns. >> thank you. >> brian: coming up straight ahead, he's opened for tailor swift and -- taylor swift and about to go on tour with dierks
